Originally bought this LP when it came out in '82 or so, since I was a huge fan of The Baby's music from their first album. Upon listening to it, I immediately dug it and recorded it on tape, and recall listening to it in my VW Bug almost every day! Then life happened ... other things came along ... fast forward to 2015 (wow, that went by fast!), and I see it available on Amazon, thinking 'hey, I remember really liking that album', so I purchased it. Man, I just can't get enough of this record (I mean CD), and came upon the realization that I really knew my music back in the day! After all this time, the songs still have that vitality and urgency to them, with John's emotional and sometimes 'bratty' vocals taking on a maturity and depth that you can really feel. That, and his incredible back-up band (New Yahkaz!) Ivan Kral & Tim Pierce on guitars, Donnie Nossov on bass, and the now gone-but-not-forgotten Frankie La Rocka on the drum kit, all expertly produced by Neil Geraldo of Pat...
One of my favorite albums that was lost to time , or so I thought until I found it on line. This is joh Waite at the height of his powers , agreat rock racord with a little bit of punk edge. I love the notes inside about the writing and re cording of the album. If you liked the Babys then you will love this.
His second album made him a star with "Missing You," but this debut offers an excellent blend of his work with the Babys and where he was going as a solo artist. His crack band, guided by producer and guitarist extraordinaire Neil Giraldo was the icing on the cake. This Rock Candy remaster from a few years ago is fantastic, unlike their recent releases that are plagued with distortion from pushing the levels too high. Buy it.
